Author(s): Musarrat-ul-Ain and Rehana Yasmeen Farooq

Abstract: The present investigation concerns with the growth of scales of Heniochus acuminatus. In this study, nine body regions of fish were selected. Scales of selected regions were collected and slides were prepared after proper cleaning and dehydration of scales. Each slide was studied under the microscope and different scale parameters were measured and counted. The results of regression analysis of different parameters show that all scale parameters were moderately (r=0.51-0.69) to strongly correlated (r≥0.80) with scale length and scale width. All results were found to be highly significant at α=1% (p<0.01). From the results of this study, it can be concluded that all scale parameters were correlated with each other and these scale parameters also growing in their size or numbers with the growth in scale length and scale width in H. acuminatus.
